Paris, 1900

I’ve never been to a World’s Fair, and that spectacle seems to have diminished in importance over the past century. Back in the day, though, they were A Big Deal, as evidenced by these colourised photos from the Paris event, in which the city’s buildings seem to have doubled in number for the occasion – I don’t recognise half of the structures shown here! Some of the photos are fantastic; I had a hard time choosing which to include, but in the I went with my heart. 🙂
